NFT: 'The Trial of the Chicago 7'.

SFGFNCGiantsFan : 10/16/2020 7:55 pm
Anyone catch this yet? It's a Sorkin film that premiered on Netflix today. It's about the '68 Chicago DNC organizers & their subsequent trial. I found it really well done.

Sorkin has delivered some serious gems over the years: A Few Good Men, The Social Network, Moneyball, The American President, Steve Jobs, etc. That's a damn impressive resume. And of course, TV wise...The West Wing & Sports Night, a show I wish had gotten a longer leash on the air.

Though your brother's bound and gagged
And they've chained him to a chair
Won't you please come to Chicago
Just to sing
In a land that's known as freedom
How can such a thing be fair
Won't you please come to Chicago
For the help we can bring
We can change the world
Re-arrange the world
It's dying, to get better
Politicians sit yourself down,
There's nothing for you here
Won't you please come to Chicago
For a ride
I saw the original back in '68

I picked up a Graham Nash cassette tape at a local thrift shop for $1. It was Nash's first album entitled "Songs For Beginners." There is a wonderfully haunting version of that song on the tape. It's different than the CSNY versions I'd heard. Incredible song and even better lyrics.
Just watched it
